by default statuses are managed under the menu item “Settings”. A new menu item “Extended Post Status” should appear there.
If you prefer to have the statuses menu item in the main menu, you can do that by selecting the option “Move status to main admin menu” in “Settings > Writing”.
Thanks, I probably should have looked there… long night 🙂
It’s working great, but one thing I’ve noticed is that when you move a post to a custom status it loses the permalink – move it back to drafts and the permalink reappears so it’s not a major issue, but perhaps worth tweaking?
I guess your custom status is not public. Permalinks are only created for publicly accessible posts. Go to the settings of your custom status and activate the checkbox “Public”, then the permalink should be generated.
Works like a charm, thanks!

the topic with the permalink came up again here (https://wordpress.org/support/topic/permalinks-further-issue/) I wanted to point out that now all users with the ability to edit posts should always see a permalink and also posts that are not public should still be able to be seen in the frontend by these users.
